    Some of the top drivers from the Carolinas and Georgia will be here. The Saturday card is  Crate Late Models, Crate Sportsman, Super Street, Pure Street, Super Stock 4, Young Guns V8, and Vintage.

  • Lady Bruins roll in softball...

    The Lancaster High Lady Bruins notched a pair of Region IV-AAAA softball wins, including a pitching gem by senior hurler Anna Howey.

    Howey hurled a no-hitter, a walk shy of a perfect game on Tuesday when the LHS girls rolled to a 17-0 win over South Pointe.

    Howey, who aided the offense with three hits, struck out 11 and faced 16 batters, one over the minimum. She walked one.

    Shay McIlwain drilled four hits and Katy Ghent generated three hits. Crystal Cauthen, Kelsey Baker and Almesha Catoe each had two hits. Cherrell Cousar clubbed a three-run home run.

  • LHS soccer team off to fast start

    The 9-0-2 Bruin boys soccer team is off to its best start in recent seasons.

    The LHS boys, who won the Red Rose Classic at Indian Land and went unbeaten in the Chester Preseason soccer tournament, have played with a great deal of confidence, aggressiveness and tactical intensity to date.

    The Bruins are led by a strong senior class, which includes Carlos White, goalkeeper; Washington Kofi, defense; Paul Munoz, defense; Tommy Cranney, defense; Alex Roach, midfield; Drew Christensen, striker; Matt White, striker; and Kwame Austin, striker.

  • Lady Vols hoping to improve on...

    Seventeen wins in a softball season would be a banner campaign for most high school teams, but not for the Andrew Jackson Lady Volunteers.

    The Lady Vols of veteran coach Steve Middleton went 17-9 last spring, but he noted “that’s our first non 20-win season in quite a while.”

    For the Lady Vols to get back to that 20-win plateau, Middleton said AJ must play tough defense.

  • LHS girls soccer continuing...

    The 2009 Lady Bruins’ soccer team established a winning aggressive style of play that has been firmly implanted and is bearing fruit with the 2010 squad.

    The tradition started by those seniors has shaped the 2010 Lady Bruins soccer team into an aggressive, intense and charismatic group. The LHS girls won the Chester Preseason Tournament for the second straight season.

    The 7-0 Lady Bruins have played well in the non-conference schedule and opened region play with a convincing 7-0 home victory over South Pointe on Tuesday.

  • Defense, pitching key for...

    INDIAN LAND Indian Land High School baseball coach Alan LeRoy is hoping the second time around holds better days this season.

    A year ago, the Warriors, in LeRoy’s first season leading the IL team, fell short in their quest for a Class A Upper State baseball playoff berth.

    The Warriors were 5-12, 4-7, seeing their postseason hopes fade in a 4-2 loss to county foe Buford to decide the Conference III-A fourth-place qualifier.

  • George holds high hopes for Lady...

    Lancaster High School softball coach Shawanda George has high hopes for the 2010 Lady Bruins’ squad.

    LHS, the runner-up in the recent Lancaster County Preseason Invitational, returns seven starters off a 15-11 team which finished as a district runner-up in the Class AAAA Upper State softball playoffs last spring.

    “I think we’re going to surprise a lot of people,” said George, who is assisted by Robert Belk and Rick Sims. “Our goal is the region and our top competition will be Blythewood and Spring Valley.

  • Vols rip IL in AJ home opener

    Andrew Jackson rolled in its 2010 home opener, routing the Indian Land Warriors, 16-5 on Saturday afternoon.

    Adam Eubanks, who worked three innings, was the winning hurler. He allowed a run, three hits and two walks. He fanned two.

    Tanner Gardner worked an inning and allowed four runs, no hits, five walks and hit a batter. He struck out one. Tripp Rollings worked an inning and posted three whiffs.

    Tyler Rogers drilled two hits, including a two-run homer to boost the Vols. Rogers added a hit.

  • Bruins laud winter stars

    Lancaster High School capped its 2009-10 winter sports season with a host of athletes in the blue and gold spotlight Monday night.

    LHS honored top performers at the school’s annual winter sports awards, which is sponsored by the Lancaster High School Bruins Booster Club.

    Athletes in basketball, wrestling and cheerleading took center stage in the school’s auditorium.

    The Bruins’ 20-6 Region IV-AAAA co-champion basketball team saluted a host of standouts.

  • Hough guns for solid racing...

    Michael Hough, known as “Wasted Money,” drives the 1 1/2 car.

    Hough began racing in 1998 in a Camaro at Lancaster Motor Speedway in the Street Stock class. Hough said he first thought when he got in the car for the first time, “this is going to be a wild ride,” and still gets that major rush today.

    Hough’s first win was one of the biggest of his career, the 2000 Garland Parker Memorial Race in the Pure Street Division at LMS.
